I don't think tar ever stored bfs file attributes.

In GNU tar, you need to use the --xattrs flag to enable storage of extended attributes in the archive. It is not the default.

In star and BSD tar, it is the default, but they are stored in the archive in a different format than what GNU tar uses.
